The recent print-based works are my first responses to rural Norfolk after moving back to the County from London in late March. A friend suggested my interest in contemporary relationships to the pastoral and landscape that includes imagery relating to new build housing and suburban development, could work well translated through linocut. Here I've utilized the medium's connection to the domestic sphere whilst the sculptural, carved quality of marks and forms evoke and communicate landscape that is being cut up and reconfigured. I've continued to use colour to communicate mood whilst the rich tones of oil-based print ink invests imagery with an opulent quality. Recent 3d works configure themes through friable architectural constructions composed of printed fragments of foam board, clay, fur, plastic cars and flowers.
